About

Kira on the Arc de Triomphe.png

I’m Kira M. Newman, the creator of Paris on the Brain and a psychology journalist currently residing in Toronto.

To me, Paris is happiness—there’s no other city in the world where simply strolling in the streets makes me feel joyful and at home.

Since flights to CDG can get a little pricey, though, I started this blog to stay in touch with the magic of Paris, and to share it with Paris lovers around the world.

You won’t find many “best restaurant” or “cheap hotel” lists here—just the most interesting tidbits, meaningful stories, and beautiful photos to keep you connected to Paris wherever you happen to be.
